Furiously sewing every night and weekend, trying to finish things up before Hawaii, has left me with no time for blogging. And of course, as much as I've been working, I don't have a whole lot of completion to show for it yet. I was working on the 40" square 'stashbuster' applique/pieced weekly project from my online group, and I'm in the process of doing the quilting on it. Bad night last night, wound up ripping out more than I stitched. I guess I just wasn't feeling the freemotion last night. Hopefully tonight.
The plan is to take my machine in for a spa getaway tomorrow morning. I figure it's a good time since I really need to do some ironing, housework, and general running around before my trip, and I'll be gone a week, so it's a good time to not miss it. I'll be going through withdrawal by tomorrow night. I never did finish my daughter's quilt, and I'm afraid there's just too much quilting to do on it to finish it tonight. Oh well, fresh start on a clean and rested machine once I get back.
I can always work on some crafts Sunday. I've got some shell trees to make for my etsy shop before Christmas, and I really want to make the BeachWalker Santa, though I might be better inspired after having spent a week on a Waikiki beach (if I ever get any time off to get to the beach :) ).
I'll check in tomorrow or Sunday and post a photo of the only quilt I complete tonight, and any crafts I amuse myself with...unless you'd rather see a photo of the overflowing basket of ironing I need to get to before I leave.
Have a great Friday. Enjoy your weekend!
